I came to a new understanding about myself recently. At my session last week, after hearing me go on and on about a recent bout of man-related depression, my therapist cut me off with a revelation. “You know what you are?” Dr. A said. “You’re an extreme emotions junkie.

The first step to getting soft winter skin is exfoliating. But you don’t want to use any old scrub, right? We love Sabon’s Organic Body Scrub for its Dead Sea minerals ingredients, essential organic ingredients, and organic olive oil. (All the organic properties are certified by ECOCERT and Bio Swiss.) The Organic Body Scrub is an amazing way to slough away your dead skin, while replenishing the moisture at the same time. The oils also give your skin a light and calm feeling.
